If you want to make JOKER perform at peak performance in AFK Arena, you need to run the right built. While many players think simply maxing out will do the trick (well, not too wrong), there are certain sweetspots with JOKER that will give a big boost so I have some recommendations below that you will very likely find interesting.
Important! If you want to check how well JOKER does in the current meta of all heroes in AFK Arena, please check out my current tier list of all heroes here. JOKER’s Signature Item
JOKER’s Signature Item should be at +20. A nice buff in stats and the full bonus also extends it to 15 seconds making it a really strong Signature Item overall for JOKER.. If you want to learn more about my recommended priority how you should invest into Signature Items in AFK Arena, check out my SI Priority Guide here. Furniture Recommendation
Overall it’s recommended to get JOKER’s 3/9 furniture set bonus. JOKER’s cleansing from crowd control and shield is nice to have but won’t contribute a ton of survivability to JOKER. The 9/9 is actually not used that often. If you want to learn more about in what order to unlock your heroes furniture sets, check out my furniture priority guide here. Recommended Artifacts
Verdant Longbow is the best artifact to run with JOKER in most cases, although you can also consider running Duras Eye or Shroud of Verdure as backups, depending on your team setup and what artifact you have available. Engraving
In terms of Engravings, your final goal should be E30.. The skill and stats from E30 are a game-changer here and absolutely worth getting and you will feel the difference in battle, although I don’t recommend investing more. Learn more about my recommended engraving priority here.
